Air Freight Lana'i
(808) 845 - 4577

We have extensive experience coordinating emergency air cargo services for Lana’i and all the Hawaiian archipelago. We know the challenges that affect supply in this area and can overcome them, keeping the island prosperous and efficient no matter what transformations it experiences.

Critical Air Cargo Services for the Island of Lana’i

As one of Hawaii’s smallest and most remote islands, Lana’i is perhaps best known for the unique role of one of its residents. Larry Ellison owns roughly 98% of the island, with the other 2% being divided between the state and the island’s 3,367 residents. Having one person owning so much of the island certainly makes Lana’i's economy unique, all the more so because of Ellison’s many ambitious plans for its development. Having promoted things like green energy and a green agricultural industry, Ellison plans to transform Lana’i on an economic and technological level. But like all such transformations, this will only be possible with quick access to quality supplies. AirFreight.com provides this quick access.

For the "outer" or "neighbor" islands (which is all of them but Oahu), 99% of providers would say they are a 2 day point minimum from anywhere on the mainland, even LA. We have options to do it overnight from anywhere.

Lana’i Urgent Air Cargo Dispatch

Air Freight Lana'i

Making Lana'i Business a Top Priority

The trouble with getting supplies on the Hawaiian islands is that, unless your business is on Oahu, any supplies from mainland North America will typically take at least two days to reach you. This issue is especially serious for Lana’i, which, because of its small population and remote location, is often a low priority for air and sea carriers. But AirFreight.com makes Lana’i businesses a top priority, and our resources and expertise allow us to plan deliveries to the island from anywhere in North America, all in less than a day. We bring together a wide range of resources, most importantly our network of airline affiliates, who let us schedule or charter flights from any major US, Mexican, or Canadian city almost immediately. We also benefit from the extensive training and experience of our coordination staff, who can draw up delivery plans that are safe against all disruption.

Single Point of Contact (SPOC)

One of the challenges of expedited deliveries is that it can be hard for businesses requesting them to get clear information before and during the delivery process. AirFreight.com eliminates this problem through our single point of contact (SPOC). The SPOC is a number you can call at any time to speak with the people best suited to help you. If you call before you’ve placed an order, you’ll talk to professionals who can explain all our services, highlight the pros and cons of each, and begin planning the order. If you call about an order that’s already underway, you’ll immediately get in touch with the team that’s coordinating your order, who can let you know how it’s going and what to expect for the rest of the delivery. In this way, we not only keep you fully informed but also gather all the information we need to meet your needs as precisely as possible.

Concierge-Level Customer Service

Another serious challenge of expedited deliveries is that it’s hard to exercise the proper amount of control given your business. Different companies have different preferences for their supplies; some are happy to leave them to a carrier or coordinator’s discretion, while others want to actively manage the delivery process from start to finish. AirFreight.com accommodates all types of delivery management styles! As a concierge air freight coordinator, we ask you right at the start how you want to be involved. We’ll tailor the amount of information we give you based on how much you want to communicate with us throughout the order; we’ll never hide anything you want to know from you, but we also won’t overload you with information you don’t want. We take a similarly tailored approach to making decisions, presenting you with the choices that you want to make while making decisions for you when you’d rather leave it up to us.

Air Freight

Traditional air freight is exactly what you probably think it is — booking space on scheduled flights to get your items from their starting point to Lana’i. This may sound simple in theory, but the complexity is sorting through all the different cargo airlines’ schedules to find a solution that works for you. AirFreight.com takes care of the sorting, and does it with ease! We have a network of affiliated airlines that is as large as it is dense, giving us easy access to cargo flight schedules all over North America. If there’s a flight near your starting point to Lana’i in time for your order, we’ll be sure to find and book it. If there is no such flight, we’ll find the best set of connections. One way or another, we will make certain that your items reach Lana’i on time.

Air Charter

For an island as remote as Lana’i, sometimes even expert coordination of chains of connecting flights isn’t enough to complete your delivery before your deadline. When this happens, AirFreight.com keeps to our “one way or another” promise by setting up air charters. These are new flights arranged for specific clients. When you order one of our air charter deliveries, we’ll find an airline that can set up a flight near your starting point and then reserve that flight for you alone. No one else’s supplies will be in the cargo hold, and the plane won’t land anywhere but Lana’i. Just like we do during standard air freight deliveries, we’ll also coordinate transit to and from the airports, so your items make it to their chartered flight without delay.

Same-Day Hand-Carry

Lana’i clients who transport sensitive or confidential items often feel they can’t trust expedited deliveries, since their standard security measures don’t necessarily carry over to emergency expeditors. With AirFreight.com, this is not so! We uphold high standards of safety and confidentiality on all orders, and can even go the extra mile on smaller orders by assigning a same-day hand-carry courier. This courier will pick up your items directly from the starting point and watch over them the entire journey. They can even physically hold onto your items if need be, ensuring that they’re never left idle while they’re on their way and no harm can come to them.
